WELL I WAS GONNA WAIT FOR THE NEXT WORD WAR…(EVERYTHING I REALLY NEEDED TO KNOW I LEARNED FROM ROCK AND ROLL: Lesson #3)

…But with 75 and counting dead in France, a Not-Just-For-Trust-Fund-Babies-Anymore “Day of Rage” scheduled across America tomorrow, Donald Trump announcing his intention to declare war on something or other if he’s elected (just heard it on O’Reilly, it must be true!), and the Democratic Nominee unable to get a basic security clearance if she were anything less, this seems like as good a time as any to dedicate a song to the future. If I’m going to do that, it might as well be the one song that, when I first heard it, made me realize how much I didn’t miss the Hundred Years War…Happy Bastille Day.

  1. Read today that this so called group, with the moniker of ‘Days Of Rage’ may be planning a ‘protest’ at the Gateway Arch’ on the Mississippi Riverfront tomorrow.( I am from St. Louis, Mo.) Yesterday, they were ‘protesting’ in front of the Gates of Graceland….Now they have gone too far!…The Donald is still a total nightmare for me!!!….Now, the new killings in France today….I truly want to ‘cancel’ the year 2016….Since I just celebrated ( sort of, LOL) my 75th birthday in late June….and I detest, moving…I am trapped….Perhaps this is a ‘Parallel Universe’ we are all trapped in. Since you are of a younger generation…..I want you to please hold the Fort for me! Johnny. TCB Clementine

  2. Sorry Johnny, in case I didn’t make matters clear… above… in my original statement, the group protesting in front of the Gates of Graceland were NOT ‘Days of Rage’…. It was ‘Black Lives Matter’….TCB Clementine

  3. Well, I ain’t goin’ nowhere! But I’m truly sorry I’ve lived to see all this come to pass (as I’m sure you are too). Somewhere in the last few years I’ve lost my old optimism. I do study history and I do know things have been worse, even in our own history. But in some way the ground feels like it is shifting and I doubt very seriously that anyone is going to be able to shift it back anytime soon. Stay safe tomorrow Clementine…and in the days to come!
